Shabbat shalom, mishpocah! Time to get serious about this week's Torah portion and related readings! A synopsis can be found on our website. This is a GREAT parasha on many fronts, including the fact that we are allowed to experience with YHWH's people the original Pesach - "Passover"! Our reading contains a continuation of the plagues YHWH sent to Egypt. If you've already read the Torah portion, you saw that the final three plagues were: Locusts (Ex. 10:4, Ex. 10:12-15); Darkness (Ex. 10:21-23); Death of the Firstborn (Ex. 11). These plagues kept happening because it was YHWH's will to teach Egypt a lesson in who was really in charge! For more, please click on the link above.
